For the Love of Jimmy's...

Post by D.R.H. » Thu Nov 28, 2019 6:08 pm

We have seen several clips from this video in the past. Well, I stumbled on the entire, uncut film. And boy it is a Duezy!! Unfortunately, it is not available from Periscope Films. Enjoy though. :)

Thanks for that Dave. It's worth looking at more than once.
Things that caught my notice:-
All steel cargo beds.
GMC badge on grill
#7 lifting frame mounted in SWB truck with ill fitting tarpaulin
Round (fuel?) container at rear end of R/H running board.
Reflector in the centre of rear mud guards.
Diamond T 6x6 reversing articulated trailer.

What have I missed?

The U.S.A. numbers indicate CCKWX LWB/SWB October 1940 thru Feb 1941.
note the sound of 1st Gear, Low Range and the use of the traction devices.

David and Joe, right you both are!! :) I LOVE this video, it is the best. Joe, this video has inspired me to to finish my Chevy with more accurate parts of the day including the 6 volt electrical system. That's why I inquired about the exhaust system for the Jimmy, thanks for that BTW.

Dave
Have you seen the video featuring Scott Miller singing the Red Ball Express song? It is on you tube and on the 514 QMTC site. There is some good Jimmy footage shown.

What a great video ! :)

Also interesting to see the right side rear view mirror suddenly appear at 11:21.

Best Regards...

That R/H mirror is on a Diamond T.
The Jimmies go without.

David, yes I have seen that video. Also Guys about the 'truck with passenger mirror', a Jimmy wouldn't pull a trailer of its' tonnage. It would have been really cool to see the combo drive past the camera first. Then we could have seen that it was a closed cab D-T.
